The International Music Day was initiated in 1975 to encourage reflection on the role of music. In the first letter of invitation to celebrate this day in 1975, Lord Yehudi Menuhin, then IMC President, expressed his wish that the International Music Day ÅgÅcconstitute a major achievement among our activities and become an event for the propagation of greater knowledge of our art, arid for the strengthening of the bonds of peace and friendship between peoples through musicÅh. Accordingly, the International Music Day is intended to encourage the promotion of musical art among all sections of society; the application of the UNESCO ideals of peace and friendship between peoples, of the evolution of their cultures, of the exchange of experience and of the mutual appreciation of their aesthetic values. We are inviting you - as part of the IMC family - to join in the 2005 celebrations of the International Music Day under the theme Musics of the World. Its aims are to: 1. Create awareness for the concept of musical diversity both in theory and in practice through concerts, workshops, seminars or exhibitions on the theme of Musics of the World and encourage people to actively explore, experience and participate in a variety of musics.

2. Promote peopleÅfs awareness of their right to: • express themselves musically in all freedom • learn musical languages and skills • have access to musical involvement through participation, listening, creation, and information • develop their artistry and communicate through all media, with proper facilities at their disposal • obtain just recognition and remuneration for their services On the occasion of the IMC General Assembly and the Music World Forum to be held in Los Angeles from October 1 _ 5, 2005, IMC will celebrate the IMD with a concert entitled Musics of the World, featuring a wide variety of musical styles, genres and forms from all over the globe.
